it's snowing


i have no real picture today, because ALL my projects are in "halfway" status. so i'll put in one of my boys this morning doing something i love them doing, playing together and having thier best friends live under the same roof. truely i am so greatful that they love to play together.
i don't think i'm going to make too much headway on too many projects today either. we'll see how the day plays out...but i need a day off, and that's not going to happen, so i'm curling up under my quilt start reading one of the books i got from the library while the little one naps, drink hot chocolate, start a fire, and stay in my sweats all the live long day.
i asked for a blessing from our bishop (something i have a hard time doing because i always think, there are people who need it far worse than i do.) but i did it anyways...what a blessing, it was a.maz.ing. i was blessed with strength, amongst many other things that are very personal and dear to my heart, i was promise many things, and my faith has been strengthened.

ah and yes the countdown to my birthday has started 5 days till my 33rd...what do i have lined up? well i'm getting my hair done tomorrow, and i asked her to wax my eyebrows because truth be told i lost my tweezers about a month ago, and i'm growing a national forest around my once nicely plucked eyebrows, i'm going up to slc, going to a BYU game with the youth in my church, and i'm going to fabric stores WITH my children and not get embarrassed of the disaster we are in public places, oh and i might throw in there a little Tai Pan...and i'm going to eat glorious Chinese food! yes i'm going to have a grand time...while i drag my children with me everywhere I WANT TO GO! ;) and they'll like it!

I don't think you should ever feel like you don't deserve a blessing. Everyone needs them from time to time!

I loved hearing about your plans for the day. Makes it feel all warm and cozy. Wish we had some of that here

hey V. I know exactly how you feel about receiving a blessing. I was in the same boat. I was finally convinced that I was worthy of receiving a blessing just for me and for my needs (health). It really strenthened my faith!!! Hope you are feeling better these days about all that is goin on if your life! Happy birthday!

I'm sorry I'm not home to help with the kiddos. I'm sure they'll behave. :)

I'm excited that we're going to be the same age! Well... for a couple of months anyway. ;)

I would take you up on your offer to come along~what a fun time. I stayed in all day and didn't do much either. I love those kind of days once in awhile. I am glad you had a nice blessing. I have been feeling the need for one too. It is funny how we wait until we're nearly desperate..where did we ever get the notion that there's only a quantitative amount to go around? Everyone seems to have that idea but in reality it cannot be so. Know what I mean?

Sounds like so much fun. We love Tai Pan.

Ooh--are you going to show us the fabrics you buy and tell where you bought them? I bet you're fun to shop with--since you have such cute taste.

You can't get more embarrassed than I am with all my children. I actually yell (and swear) at them loudly like perfect white trash.

I am so happy for you! You will be in my neck of the woods. There is a great fabric store on 7200 S. You should go check it out!

Good for you! Its a good day when you get to read a book, wear sweats and drink hot chocolate. Glad you are feeling better! Happy birthday in 5 days!
